Naskea is a small and very simple "hacking" game. Your goal is to reach a final node within 10 seconds and to avoid the security nodes. You capture single nodes by entering their code or by solving a simple math problem.

/edit: Thanks to Tim for solving my .jar problem ;)

Have fun with the game ;)

Difficult, but rewarding when you do finally get it!

Well, that was hard! I would have liked to know what to enter more intuitively besides reading help, but otherwise game is good.

There currently seems to be a problem with the host "Sorry, access forbidden, error 403" but the game looks pretty cool from the screenshots :)

Can't get it to work for me. I'm on a Macbook, I get the .jar to run fine but it doesn't accept my number input (arrow keys work fine). Is it hardwired to only accept input from the numpad that is on the right-hand side of most PC keyboards?

Felt like a rage game. But an amazing one. :D

Very clever, at first I didn't particularly like the idea, but then found I couldn't stop playing it until I got it. Perhaps worth allowing the use of top row number buttons as well as the numpad for us laptop users, but a really good idea otherwise.

Wow, really difficult! Could use a more gentle introduction to the different node-types; like more levels, starting easy. However, very great concept!

Thanks for the feedback, I just added the top row number keys aswell ;)

Damn that was hard. Great idea but I think I need to go back to school before I try again!

Very fun game.
Although seems the first time I used the numpad ever.

Frustratingly difficult. Could only make it to the 4th layer without typing a key. Am too slow to process the numbers fast enough. There was a noticeable delay for me reading the [1] numbers before I could react. I found [2] keys the easiest, and strategised tha multiples of three were the fastest to solve, e.g. [9 = mash 3 3 3] Ended up learning lots of short key combos to solve 2's, but still got caught out with a brain freeze every so often. Good overall, well presented, but fiendishly hard for me.

Really tricky but a smart concept. Good job!

That's soooo hard! (especially without a touchpad)
But I finally did it (in 9.52 seconds).
Really good game :-)

Games involving maths is great, really pushes your brain to think fast. I was so close to finishing multiple times, I just couldn't get it! But in the end I finally cracked it in 9.52 seconds

I couldn't play this because i'm on a laptop with no numpad keys

10 secs for all that is really hard...
The graphical design is great, but I don't like de-capitalized text too much (won't deduct anything for personal preferences though)
The concept is nice, and the game appears to be finished - congrats on that!

Hard, hard, DAMN HARD!

But I loved it anyway! Nice job!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
